.o.d., department of state, cia, should be interviewed by select committees to get the same story from each group >> okay, the fiscal cliff, if we don't do something by the end of the year, taxes go up on everybody. the child tax change, the marriage tax changes. everybody gets hit and hard. the military will get major-league cut, beginning january 2013, it will be the smallest navy since 1915, the smallest air force in the history of the country. so doing nothing is a catastrophe. here's what i think is fair to ask the republicans. we have 15% of gdp in revenue. the historical average is 18% going to the federal government. one way to get more money is cap deductions. if you limit deductions to $50,000 per punish person, to take care of the missed-class person and then some, you could raise $750 billion in new revenue. to do what? to pay down the debt. we need more money to get out of debt. and to lower tax rates for corporate rates and other rates to create more jobs. i am willing to put revenue on the table to pay down debt and create a better economy. but my democratic friends have to reform
meeting, the director of the cia told us that the changes in these talking points had come from the fbi, and then called us back a number of hours later and said, no, it was done by the cia. do you mean that all these weeks later they still don't know who made the changes in the talking points? and why is that important? because the impression that the american people got from ambassador rice's comments, that this was a spontaneous demonstration, triggered by a hateful video, that was not true. finally, by the way, after our meeting, ambassador rice admitted for the first time that that was not true. so it -- >> greta: why didn't she admit that six weeks ago? that's what i don't understand. you have to pull every single detail out of it. she should have said that six weeks ago. why not say it publicly? why is it behind closed doors with senators? >> we still don't who made the changes in the talking points. i asked the director of the cia how many analysts are there in the cia. i don't think this is classified. he said 2,500. now, wouldn't you think that one of those analysts would have

everyone in the media was given their time line and then when the cia did it, we were left off the list. we're asking questions and the administration is giving none. now they are stonewalling the senate, which is so interesting because in the senate, the democrats are the ones -- they run the committees. they are asking for the documents and they can't get them. >> did the president know about the prior attacks? if the president knew about the prior attacks why didn't he supply the security that was necessary -- to protect the ambassador? i mean, this is six, seven weeks, i don't know the answer it that. this consulate was attacked twice, it was attacked once when they blew a hole in the wail. we don't know whether the president knew about it. if the president did know about it, why didn't he supply more security? and then when he found out about the third attack, why didn't he act, in a more forceful manner to get the military there, to get reinforcements there, the cia was held up at the airport 3 hours, these are incredible questions that the longer the administration waits, the more th
getting much information out of the administration? is it in part because of the c.i.a. or situation where they are trying to cover mistakes? >> i believe they are trying to have a real investigation. i believe that we are also in the middle of something called an election and the final days. what i see is a growing body of evidence that the state department has can you please pa built for the death of ambassador and three americans. the warnings were specific. they were direct. they named the enemy, and they said t consulate needed more support. it also indicated in the cable that the consulate should probably move long term into the annex. we know that is the c.i.a. facility in benghazi. >> greta: thank you. we all know people at the state department and how hard they work. they want to take care of their people. >> i think we're starting to get the facts. >> greta: without any doubt. the facts need to come out. we need to get the facts. right now, more and new accusations in the handling of the libyan attack. good evening, sir. were you able to listen to her report about this cable? >>
